Backstage at CHANEL Cruise 2018/19 Presentation
By SENATUS Magazine | 6 May 2018
A mock cruise liner was constructed within the Grand Palais in Paris for CHANEL's Cruise 2018/19 presentation. The ship, ‘La Pausa’, was named after Gabrielle Chanel’s summer house on the French Riviera.



The ship took two months to create with an exterior in plywood and a hull made of myriad steel, was brought to life by lighting mimicking lapping ocean waves and the sound of cawing sea gulls.

Chanel's collection was replete with a complementing nautical theme, for this mid-season collection. Chic baggy pants opened the show, sporting optical black and white lines.


The motif was based on the razzle dazzle designs painted on U.S. and British warships from World War I to camouflage them from German U-Boats. The stripes appeared down layered sleeves on two-piece skirts and in technicolor across white sporty dresses.

Styles from the Sixties also were a key element in the relaxed 87-piece collection. White berets met sexy exposed midriffs, miniskirts and loose white sweaters that were cut with a retro bateau collar. Mary Janes — one-strap shoes — were also given a cool reworking in silver and white, and some had rubber soles.
